Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder was the Cinderella story of amateur boxing, rising from obscurity to not only win the National Golden Gloves and US Championships, but to earn a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China which was the United States first boxing medal.
Deontay has a level of power that is unprecedented even in the heavyweight, winning 36 of his first 37 fights by knock-out. In January 2015, Deontay took his first fight to the world, taking on Bermane Stiverne for the WBC World Title. After an impressive 12 round fight, Wilder was declared the winner by unanimous decision, becoming the first American to win a world heavyweight title in nine years. Wilder has since made 4 title defences and is looking unstoppable.
WBC World Heavyweight Title from 2015 to 2019, former WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight Title, 2008 Heavyweight Bronze Medallist, 2007 National Golden Glove Heavyweight Champion, 2007 United States Amateur Heavyweight Champion
